Noida Traffic Police has launched a dedicated WhatsApp Helpline Number - 7065100100 - much to the relief of Noida commuters. This is a positive step forward in the direction of reducing chaos on the roads and addressing the traffic issues in a pro-active manner. Now citizens and commuters can post comments, complaints and suggestions in the form of brief text, pictures and audio clips for bringing improvements in traffic management of the twin cities in order to enhance road safety.
Noida Traffic Police has already leveraged the social media to the benefit of commuters. They have a functional Facebook
page with over 3000 followers where traffic updates are posted regularly. But the reach of facebook is limited among Noidaites. Therefore, WhatsApp Helpline being user-friendly with a larger reach and 24X7 availability is expected to improve traffic conditions in Noida more effectively. This initiative of using social media networking will certainly improve connectivity between people and traffic police leading to better road safety. The first day of the launch saw flooding of helpline with around 300 messages.
So if there's a red-light jump, defunct signal, unauthorized parking, or any other traffic violation complaints, just pick up your phone and WhatsApp the details to Noida Traffic Police and they will provide immediate assistance.
Traffic Police also has an emergency helpline number 1073 to facilitate immediate assistance to commuters.
